Tucson VW fans rejoice as the popular German automaker releases the celebrated Beetle and CC for the new 2013 model year. To make space for incoming vehicles, many 2012 Volkswagen models will be offered at significantly lower price points which translate into major savings for Arizona Volkswagen customers.

Two of Volkswagen’s standout models, the Beetle and the CC, were given significant makeovers for the 2013 model year.

The new 2013 Beetle has an updated laid back styling and a relatively narrow rev range. The 2013 Beetle will be out early this fall and will come with a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine that makes an impressive 140 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. It will be connected to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed DSG (dual-clutch) automated manual gearbox. This engine offers a great performance while still being incredibly economical. The TDI allows drivers to drive hard like a gasoline engine and offers a strong kick of torque. EPA ratings for the latest Beetle TDI ring in at 29 mpg city and 39 highway. To make room for all the new Beetles, the previous 2012 Volkswagen Beetle 2.5L is only $18, 750 or $179 per month for a 39-month lease, only at Chapman Volkswagen of Tucson.

Not to be outdone by the Beetle upgrades, the new 2013 CC boasts a more modern style and the body of the car got an elegant makeover. The hood and front bumper have been tweaked and car’s sides are more sculpted, while the frameless doors remain intact from the previous models. Similar to previous CC models, the four and six-cylinder engines provide a smooth yet responsive and sporty ride. The base models come well-equipped with 17-inch wheels, automatic climate control, heated and powered front seats, a touch-screen audio system with eight speakers, Bluetooth, iPod connectivity and leatherette seating. The Sports Plus trim adds adaptive front lighting, navigation, and 18-inch wheels.

To make room on the car lot for the updated Beetle and CC, Chapman VW is offering many 2012 models at significantly lower price points.

“Tucson VW drivers can get great deals during our model year close out sale. Our customers are looking for reliable, gas-sipping, family-friendly vehicles; Volkswagen has what shoppers are looking for and now those vehicles are offered at super low prices while supplies last,” said Chapman Volkswagen Tucson General Manager Neb Yonas.

Some of the 2012 models that are sure to fly off the lot during the close out sale include Jetta, Passat, and Tiguan.

Volkswagen’s most popular model, the Jetta, was just recently redesigned and the 2013 model remains relatively similar to its 2012 version. The roomy back seat, great fuel economy, sporty handling and ride, and low base price all remain a standard. Despite cost cutting, the Jetta is still a solid-feeling sedan with good steering and handling, the GLI trim is even sportier and quicker. Right now at Chapman Volkswagen Tucson the 2012 Jetta sedan is only $15,250 or $129 per month for a 39-month lease.

The Passat returned from a small hiatus in 2012 as a new and larger sedan. The 2013 Passat offers a lot of bang for your buck with a spacious interior and well-executed design. The huge cabin, quality details, easy ride, and the option of the efficient six-cylinder turbo-diesel engine are all options that transfer over from the previous model. Overall the newest Passat offers a solid, luxurious, and quiet ride and can be yours for only $20,950 or $159 per month for a 36-month lease at your Tucson Volkswagen dealer.

For those looking for a compact SUV, the Volkswagen Tiguan is a perfect fit. With a recently refreshed interior and upgraded fuel economy the Tiguan was upgraded for the 2012 model. The new 2013 model remains very similar to the previous model with the same spacious interior and impressive quality. There is a second-row seat that moves for more legroom and the turbocharged 2.0-liter is a strong and efficient engine that offers a sporty and spirited turbo. The 2012 Tiguan S is only $21,950 or $199 per month for a 36-month lease.
